Drinking water quality study was carried out in the Malda District of West Bengal, India. The objective of this study is to identify the quality of water where ground water is used for domestic and agriculture purposes. Several water samples were collected in the pre and post monsoon month of March 2011 to February 2012 and March 2012 to February 2013 from different bore wells samples and were analyzed for iron level. This study reveals that the agriculture activities, geological formation and local environmental conditions control the water quality. The water in this area is mostly moderately hard. Water suitability for domestic industrial and irrigation purposes were examined using WHO, Indian standards classification, which indicate that except in few cases, the water in most cases is more or less suitable for domestic purpose and irrigation.
